Is the engraving of QSA's & KSA's limited to Officer's only?

I was under the impression that QSA's & Ksa's were impressed with the details.

Does it mention on the Medal Rolls, if the naming is engraved or Impressed?

Cheers
John.

Hello John

This is a good section on the forum relating to naming styles, link below
www.angloboerwar.com/medals-and-awards/b...-medal-naming-styles
The engraving style was for officers and some cavalry units, it is not mentioned on the medal rolls

I have more negative news for you. There are very few files under the Seago name listed on the website of the National Archives of South Africa, and none refer to Richard Samuel. It is therefore possible, and perhaps even likely that he did not die in South Africa. Also, if he did stay on in SA after the war, he led a quiet life out of the eyes of officialdom.

Regards
Brett

Morning Brett

Thank you again for taking the time.
Yes he seems to be a bit of a mystery man, I have had no luck with research on the UK side.
At least I have his confirmed medal rolls and nominal roll.
Thanks again for looking.

Paul :)
